The Taming of the Shrew will be preformed inside the Guildford Castle Keep, 13th-21st July.

We are really looking forward to Summer 2018 when we make Guildford Castle Keep our home again as a perfect backdrop for one of Shakespeare’s most iconic plays. Directors Anne Leggett and Jenny Swift return to this very special venue following their sell-out run of Henry V in the Castle Keep in 2014.

The Taming of the Shrew is a fast paced comedy telling the story of the romance between Katherine, whose fierce temper puts off every suitor and Petruchio, who is looking for a rich wife and sees her as a challenge.
